- Unleashed the backs and found his kicking boots in the second half.
- Cleared up at the back , unselfish passing
- Mazey runs and constantly pressured the oppo backline
- linked up nicely & scored the opening try to get us going
- Legendary try in the corner just on half time gave us the lead and momentum going into the second half, Hatfield had only just equalised!
- Secure at the back, plenty of carries, loved the contact
- Solid scrum work from the Big Yin in his final season
- Great catching at the back of the lineout, tackling and disrupting
- Breaks from deep , solid defensive tackling.
A very enjoyable victory , some great Rugby was played by a committed and skilled Chiltern team.
